Reviewers have described the upcoming game Hometopia as “the best parts of The Sims 4 and House Flipper”. Say no more; I’m already in.
The conceit of the game seems to be that you play as a realty group and go around furnishing, building, and/or flipping houses. But unlike in the Sims, you can do it with your friends. Up to four players can work together on a neighborhood, and you can bet I will be enlisting the three artsiest people I know in order to make the coolest, trendiest town ever.
If you’re as obsessed with this idea as I am, look out for Hometopia to open up early access on 9/27. (It’s free.)
